    I am not a skilled website builder by any stretch of the imagination so I use Sitebuilder from Yahoo Geocities. I would like to know out of 10 where my site ranks in the catergories of Layout, Content, and overall quality.

    I also am interested in a easy implemented script that would prevent the images from "bouncing back" when the page loads.

    Thanks.

    The Url Is: www.thegamingmango.com

    Well...considering the site was made with a site builder I would expect it to look a lot better.

    The navigation - buttons can be quick loading when compressed correctly and look much nicer than text.

    The mangos and the like look very unprofessional and amateurish with the faces drawn on.

    The banner looks OK but not very impressive really.

    When you click on the Staff Signup page it changes the layout and colors totally, this is very bad in web design as the viewer gets used to this layout and then when they go back to the homepage the design changes again - they will not like this.

    That should be OK for now. Sorry for being so harsh but this is my opinion and that is what you asked for. 4/10, 2/5.

    I don't like the dark colour scheme that flows through the site. Perhaps getting rid of the dark red/brown colour in favour of something lighter would spruce up the design while still keeping the darkened feel. I think that your 3 columed layout on the home page needs to be consistent, and your 3 columns should be the same length . Your counter script at the bottom is useless, to be honest.

    Yeah I agree about the color scheme. And I really don'y believe that 983 people think your site rocks, because quite frankly it doesn't.

    You certainly need to brighten things up a little bit, that will improve it a great deal.
    It's not really my preferred style of site it didn't seem very welcoming to me.
    Other then brighter appearance I would maybe try and make your site a little more consistent.

    Someone's got an excessively healthy ego.

    Actually, that's my major complaint with the whole site. You seem to want people to come to it, yet you have things in place (the FABs come to mind) that tell people where it is they can go. That's a pretty big contradiction in logic.

    Yeah that is true. And you are sort of asking people to sue you - what would you do if they actually did?
